serving the community

St Mary, ShinfieldSt Mary’s is a living church in an ancient building. It has been a place of worship since 1069 when it was founded by Guillaume de Breteuille, one of William the Conqueror’s great Marshalls.The church has changed and adapted with the times but retains many Norman features along with a new stained glass window that was installed to commemorate the Millennium.

The church has a friendly and outgoing congregation who are always happy to welcome new people into the family. We see the church as the hub of the community and firmly believe in reaching out to children and young families and being actively involved in village life.

The range of services aims to appeal to many different people. Children are always welcome at our services and there is a carpeted area at the back equipped with toys to cater to the needs of younger ones.
